    Question you got your fix

    Hi,

    My housemate was telling me about her arguments with her boyfriend that has been going on for quite a while. When she finished telling me she said joking ' well, you got your fix today, I shouldn't be going on about it more'

    What does that expression mean?

    Thank you

    Is an American expression meaning a dose or medication, "you tell that to someone ; when the person is a bad mood".(anger)
    example:
    Have you got chocolate (dose)(fix) today?

    Fix (slang) definition.
    intransitive verb drugs inject a drug: to inject an illegal drug ( slang )

    Originally a "fix" was American slang meaning a dose of illegal drug like heroin.

    However now it has become more commonly used as slang to mean a "dose" of something that makes you feel good (like a drug).

    Some people have a sugar fix when they have low blood sugar.
    Some people cannot start their day without a coffee fix.

    In your example, the person who is listening to the housemate seems to enjoy listening to her problems with her boyfriend. So the housemate jokingly refers to the rant against her boyfriend as a "fix"...that is, she feels good afterward.
